When Jesus Goes To Jail Slides, 1/19/14

  1. 1. When  Jesus  Goes  to  Jail   Acts  Series   January  19,  2014  
  2. 2. As  we  were  going  to  the  place  of  prayer,  we  were   met  by  a  slave  girl  who  had  a  spirit  of  divina8on  and   brought  her  owners  much  gain  by  fortune-­‐telling.  She   followed  Paul  and  us,  crying  out,  “These  men  are   servants  of  the  Most  High  God,  who  proclaim  to  you   the  way  of  salva8on.”  And  this  she  kept  doing  for   many  days.  Paul,  having  become  greatly  annoyed,   turned  and  said  to  the  spirit,  “I  command  you  in  the   name  of  Jesus  Christ  to  come  out  of  her.”  
  3. 3. And  it  came  out  that  very  hour.  But  when  her   owners  saw  that  their  hope  of  gain  was  gone,  they   seized  Paul  and  Silas  and  dragged  them  into  the   marketplace  before  the  rulers.  And  when  they  had   brought  them  to  the  magistrates,  they  said,  “These   men  are  Jews,  and  they  are  disturbing  our  city.  They   advocate  customs  that  are  not  lawful  for  us  as   Romans  to  accept  or  prac8ce.”  
  4. 4. The  crowd  joined  in  aJacking  them,  and  the   magistrates  tore  the  garments  off  them  and  gave   orders  to  beat  them  with  rods.  And  when  they  had   inflicted  many  blows  upon  them,  they  threw  them   into  prison,  ordering  the  jailer  to  keep  them  safely.   Having  received  this  order,  he  put  them  into  the   inner  prison  and  fastened  their  feet  in  the  stocks.     Acts  16:16-­‐24  
  5. 5. About  midnight  Paul  and  Silas  were  praying  and   singing  hymns  to  God,  and  the  prisoners  were   listening  to  them,  and  suddenly  there  was  a  great   earthquake,  so  that  the  founda8ons  of  the  prison   were  shaken.  And  immediately  all  the  doors  were   opened,  and  everyone's  bonds  were  unfastened.   When  the  jailer  woke  and  saw  that  the  prison  doors   were  open,  he  drew  his  sword  and  was  about  to  kill   himself,  supposing  that  the  prisoners  had  escaped.    
  6. 6. But  Paul  cried  with  a  loud  voice,  “Do  not  harm   yourself,  for  we  are  all  here.” And  the  jailer  called  for   lights  and  rushed  in,  and  trembling  with  fear  he  fell   down  before  Paul  and  Silas.  Then  he  brought  them   out  and  said,  “Sirs,  what  must  I  do  to  be  saved?” And   they  said,  “Believe  in  the  Lord  Jesus,  and  you  will  be   saved,  you  and  your  household.”  And  they  spoke  the   word  of  the  Lord  to  him  and  to  all  who  were  in  his   house.    
  7. 7. And  he  took  them  the  same  hour  of  the  night  and   washed  their  wounds;  and  he  was  bap8zed  at  once,   he  and  all  his  family.  Then  he  brought  them  up  into   his  house  and  set  food  before  them.  And  he  rejoiced   along  with  his  en8re  household  that  he  had  believed   in  God.     Acts  16:25-­‐34
